UPS to help Asia Pacific “stamp out this pandemic”

UPS to help Asia Pacific “stamp out this pandemic”
Today, a fleet of UPS trucks lined up at Incheon International Airport in South Korea to receive its first shipment of COVID-19 vaccines.
UPSers around the world successfully orchestrated the arrival of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines, which require ultra-cold chain storage. The vaccines were packed and stored with great care in Belgium for their journey to Incheon; and then driven to designated storage facilities throughout South Korea – maintaining strict temperature and quality controls –  to be administered to front-line healthcare workers and others deemed most at risk.

“Today, we are ready to make one of our most important deliveries in our 33-year history in Asia Pacific,” said Scott Price, president of UPS International. “South Korea can count on UPS using our smart global network and expertise in healthcare logistics to support the government in delivering the vaccines efficiently, securely and sustainably.”

“These deliveries are a culmination of public-private partnerships coming together in moving our world forward by delivering what matters,” said Doyoung Kim, managing director of UPS Korea. “Together with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency and other critical players, we are proud to have the opportunity to play a part in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.”

And this is just the start of South Korea’s COVID-19 vaccination journey. UPS will leverage its global healthcare expertise and capabilities to continue delivering COVID-19 vaccines to South Korea and the rest of the world.

“We are here to provide quality focused, patient driven healthcare to help Asia Pacific stamp out this pandemic,” Scott said. “Thank you to all our UPSers who played a critical role in making this delivery a success.”
